QuickChexx: Dan Justin, 94.5 WZOU Boston | June, 1989

94.5 FM Boston WZOU WCOZ WJMN WHDH-FM Brian Pierce Uncle Johnny Sunny Joe White

Dan Justin is another Boston personality known for his air work in the 1980s. Perhaps best known at the old 93.7 WCGY Lawrence, he was also heard on 92.9 WBOS in its Country incarnation in the mid-80s.

Here he is on WZOU at the tail end of its existence as a CHR station. It’s a very hot station at this point, while the radio landscape changed all around it. Former competitor WHTT was already WODS “Oldies 103”. WROR 98.5 was going over to “Mix” as WBMX and that left WXKS-FM “Kiss 108” as the last (and eventual winner) of Boston’s CHR war.

WZOU was at a fever pitch trying to hang on. But notice that both slogans used in the 80s to identify this station are gone. Now its just 94.5 WZOU. They had previously been calling it Z-94 and The Boston Zoo. So good while it lasted.
